If you're like us, your workout motivation largely comes from music. And nothing kills your concentration like an ear bud falling out mid-sprint or your headphones slipping off your head during a deadlift. We get it. We’ve been there and felt the frustration of focusing on faulty headgear rather than nailing a killer workout. But that’s about to change. 

Our editors tested 11 pairs of headphones—from cordless headsets to in-ear buds so you’re sure to find the right set for your workout needs and preferences. Say goodbye to gym grunts and chatter; though we don't think you'll miss either.
